Title of the work: “Hypnotic Frenzy“
Technique: Oil on canvas and precious stones (Black Spinel, Hawkeye and Onyx)
Dimensions: 80×80 Cm
Realization year: 11/2019
A painting containing metaphysical concepts and allegorical figures capable of divulging some unhealthy aspects of the human psyche.
The eye of Horus, enriched by an insert in black Spinel, constitutes the common denominator that identifies belonging to a Trilogy, contains within itself a hypnotic frenetic power that conditions the population.
The dive flight of a Peregrine Falcon, embellished with a “Hawkeye” gemstone on the eye, symbolizes the frenzy of a Company always fighting against precious time, evoked by a clock that marks the hours with an Onyx hand.
The effects of collective hypnosis are easily identifiable in the large group of subjects represented in the background, who wander aimlessly, until they dissolve into nothing, as if they were Zombies. Among these stands out the presence of a boy who, absorbed in the obsessive use of a smartphone (made with a black Spinello insert), absentmindedly walks the path and risks falling into a ravine.
Also in this case, the pigments spread on the painting were previously mixed with Poppy oil.
